Artist's Notes

Joe gets deep into the character of the Captain of the Beagle in his vocal and James plays supremely cool weissenborn on this catchy acoustic folk track.

Music by Joe Elbee; Lyrics by Alex O'Brien

The crew came down with scurvy

And we lost our way

I'd give you all our gold

For an orange today

Circles, we're sailing round in circles

Circles, we're sailing round in circles

Yes, I'm Captain of the Beagle

All the islands look the same

Curse these bloody no-good maps

I'll whip the man to blame

Circles, we're sailing round in circles

Circles, we're sailing round in circles

Tierra Del Fuega

You are hell on earth to me

I'm thirsty, weak, and boiling

And I fear a mutiny

Circles, we're sailing round in circles

Circles, we're sailing round in circles

My mind isn't up to the task I'm afraid

My mind is slipping to a point beyond the grave

My mind is slipping, Mister Darwin where are you?

I'm not the fittest anymore what can I do?

Circles, I'm sailing round in circles

Circles, I'm sailing round in circles

Tierra Del Fuega

You are hell on earth to me

Tierra Del Fuega

You are hell

You are hell on earth to me

You are hell on earth to me
